Join us for an engaging webinar as we examine some of the societal and demographic changes that have created the need for intergenerational programs. You’ll learn the key components of successful intergenerational programs and ways to initiate or grow a program in your own community.

Participants in this web seminar will be able to:

  • Identify some of the societal and demographic changes that have created the need for intergenerational programs.
  • Understand three human development theories that are critical to successful intergenerational programming.
  • Recognize some of the best practices of volunteer management and classroom management as related to intergenerational programming.
  • Strategize on how to initiate or grow a program in your own community.

Presenter:

Andrea Weaver, Founder and Executive Director of Bridges Together, has been working in the field since 1991.  Her flagship program, Bridges: Growing Older, Growing Together, has touched more than 10,000 lives across Massachusetts and Michigan.  She founded and grew this organization in response to enthusiasm and encouragement expressed by parents and volunteers who recognized the program’s mission and effectiveness. She has an M.S. degree in intergenerational studies and is a thought-leader in the field, presenting at national and state conferences as well as running “train the trainer” workshops.  Ms. Weaver and the Bridges program have received multiple awards.
